What is hyperautomation?
Hyperautomation is the automation of as many business processes as possible by using technologies that work together in unison.
It is the culmination of Business Process Management (BPM), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), enhanced with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Together, the produces a powerful and flexible tool that tackles outdated systems by going beyond individual, stand‑alone processes. For example, by combining AI with RPA, you can successfully automate any repetitive task. And, when applied in an advanced way, you can even “automate automation” by dynamically exploring business processes and then creating bots to run these processes automatically moving forward. It creates many new opportunities that were previously unavailable, such as non‑documented processes that rely on unstructured data.
In fact, you could argue that it is redefining work in the traditional sense. Hyperautomation continues to develop and will become even more comprehensive in the future by combing more technologies, such as process mining, natural language processing and intelligent business management. There will be major implications for how we view smartly applied IT: it will accelerate the automation of the next generation of business processes.
- End-to-end reinforcement, increased productivity and elimination of low-value tasks.
- The power to leverage structured data and realise endless, new possibilities with different, combined technologies.
- This continuous improvement enables companies to minimise costs and maximise profits.
